researchers set cameras 2,000 feet below water. here comes a shark and he's about to eat his meal. he beats and then he let's go. he doesn't like it so much. and that is because the meal he was trying to have is called a hag fish. hag fish are known to be very slimy little creatures. when that shark bites, they immediately expel slimy goo that becomes like gelatin filling the gills of the predator, in this case the shark. scientists are not sure whether the gelatin eventually washes off. the hag fish left in their own slime donned up dying. >> think about the shark. the shark is like oh, yeah, i'm about to take a bite of this fish and get a mouthful of goo. >> scientists sought 14
